I just want to add that what you achieved without surgery (http://www.scoliosis-support.org/showthread.php?t=16255&page=2) is amazing and it brings a strand of hope for people who can't access to...

Re: Height as a sign of curve progression

Thank you very much Kay and Gilly.

No, and that's weird because I can see differences in pictures from 1 or 2 years ago and now, it's like my torso and neck look shorter now, I know that pictures...

Re: Height as a sign of curve progression

Hello again,

I know that it's difficult to make conclusions from pictures, but I'd like to know your opinion about two pictures of my back. The first picture was taken one year ago, the second one...

Re: Height as a sign of curve progression

I see your point Titch. As far as I'm concerned, I definitively don't want to be a walking bunch of muscles but I know that I have to find ways of being more comfortable with my body, whether...

Re: Doctor said my kyphosis and scoliosis is unreversable.

I don't know if there's any rigorous, thorough study about this or if it has completely ruled out the chances of improvement on a structural level. Maybe it's just wishful thinking but what I...

Thank you very much Gary and Titch, I'd be really lost without you guys. Talking about planks, I just tried it for 10 seconds and I didn't feel pain but my heart and lungs were as if I was running a...

Does anyone know of a good device for exercising the transverse abs? I'm ready to spend a few hundreds but I'd like something that really works. I know I could go to a gym but at this point I can...

Thank you as always Gary. I'm trying to get used to walk with my pelvis pushed forward, as you indicated me, and stretching my hamstrings (I will search exercises for hip flexors too). I feel lots of...

Re: compensatory curve

Don't want to go off topic but I have a doubt about compensatory curves, if you can reduce them somehow w/o surgery, will this destabilize your back (worsening the main/structural curve)?

Correcting hyperlordosis, is it possible?

Hello again,

I've read there and here that hyperlordosis (lumbar) can be corrected without surgery, to some extent at least. First: Is this true?

Now, I understand that excessive lordosis can be...

Re: Scheuermann's kyphosis vs compression fractures of the vertebrae

You explained it perfectly clear, titch. Thanks a lot. I have a couple of new questions now but I don't want to go off topic, so I'll start a new thread eventually.

Re: Scheuermann's kyphosis vs compression fractures of the vertebrae

Thanks for the info titch. I have a question: When kyphosis is structural, is it always due to malformed/injured vertebrae? I've been told that my vertebrae are ok but I know for sure that my...

Re: I think my curve is getting worse

In my case, sometimes I see it worse and sometimes I even see an imaginary improvement. I think that clothes, differences in weight, pictures and even mirrors can be tricky. Moreover, I don't know...

Re: sway back posture

As far as I know, in the case of kyphosis, that posture's due to a compensatory curve (increased lordosis/pelvic tilt). I don't know if the same applies to scoliosis but I'm sure someone here will be...

Re: Height as a sign of curve progression

Thank you Gilly, that's the way I did it, but I thought that maybe you had to push your shoulders down in order to expose even more the curvature.
